Isometric exercises target specific muscles at a particular joint angle in a lifting action.  For example, you can work on your buttocks by simply squeezing your two butt-cheeks together, as hard as you possibly can, for 10-seconds, and then releasing for 10-seconds.  You can do this while at work, repeating exercises like this for 10-minutes or so.

This can be a simple act of pushing, shoving or restraining someone during an argument. The argument does not have to escalate to a severe physical confrontation before someone is arrested.”

If your relationship is stifling, it is only going to get worse.  Take steps to end it and start over with someone else.  It could be the best choice you’ve ever taken for your personal happiness.
